BEAVERTON, Ore. – Tektronix Inc. in Beaverton, Ore., is introducing TekExpress equivalent time automated RF and microwave compliance test capability for 4-lane 100G electrical interfaces defined in the IEEE 802.3bm and 802.3bj specifications for the company's oscilloscopes.

Available in the Tektronix DSA8300 sequential equivalent-time sampling oscilloscope and the DPO70000SX real-time oscilloscope, this TekExpress application supports 100GBASE-CR4, 100GBASE-KR4 and CAUI-4, which are the principal electrical specifications for 100G Ethernet.

With these additions, Tektronix offers a set of IEEE 802.3bm and 802.3bj solutions covering optical (100GBASE-SR4) and electrical validation tools. The DSA8300 offers the ability to perform optical and electrical validation using one system.

The IEEE 802.3 specification is lengthy and continually evolving, making it challenging for test engineers to come up to speed. Tektronix works with standards bodies and leverages its expertise to help translate industry standard test requirements into turnkey test solutions that offer clear and concise characterization reports.

The Tektronix CAUI-4/KR4/CR4 test automation solution operates on either the DSA8300 sampling platform or the high-performance DPO70000SX 70, 59 and 50 GHz real-time oscilloscopes.
